SQLServerF1

ORA-38735: Wrong log number string in flashback log file header.
Cause: The log file number in the flashback database log file did not match the control file.
Action: If you are doing a FLASHBACK DATABASE, then the flashback cannot be performed because of the corrupted log. A restore and an incomplete recovery must be performed instead.
ORA-38736: Wrong thread number string in flashback log file header.
Cause: The thread number in the flashback database log file did not match the control file.
Action: If you are doing a FLASHBACK DATABASE, then the flashback cannot be performed because of the corrupted log. A restore and an incomplete recovery must be performed instead.
ORA-38737: Expected sequence number string doesn’t match string
Cause: The flashback database log is corrupted or is an old version.
Action: If you are doing a FLASHBACK DATABASE, then the flashback cannot be performed because of the corrupted log. A restore and an incomplete recovery must be performed instead.

ORA-38738: Flashback log file is not current copy.
Cause: A check of flashback database log file header at database open found that the flashback database log appeared to be an incorrectly restored backup. Flashback database log files cannot be backed up and restored.
Action: If you are doing a FLASHBACK DATABASE, then the flashback cannot be performed because of the corrupted log. A restore and an incomplete recovery must be performed instead.
ORA-38739: Flashback log file is more recent than control file.
Cause: The control file change sequence number in the flashback database log file was greater than the number in the control file. This implies that the wrong control file was being used. Note that repeatedly causing this error can make it stop happening without correcting the real problem. Every attempt to open the database will advance the control file change sequence number until it is great enough.
Action: FLASHBACK DATABASE can only be used with the current control file. If it is not available, then a restore and an incomplete recovery must be performed instead.
ORA-38740: Usable blocks value string is not valid.
Cause: A flashback database log file header contained a usable blocks value greater than the file size. The flashback database log file file is corrupt.
Action: If you are doing a FLASHBACK DATABASE, then the flashback cannot be performed because of the corrupted log. A restore and an incomplete recovery must be performed instead.

ORA-38741: Formatted blocks value string is not valid.
Cause: The formatted blocks value in the flashback database log file was greater than the file size. The flashback database log file was corrupt.
Action: If you are doing a FLASHBACK DATABASE, then the flashback cannot be performed because of the corrupted log. A restore and an incomplete recovery must be performed instead.
ORA-38742: Flashback log file has incorrect log reset status.
Cause: The flashback database log file header had log reset data that was different than the control file. The log was probably an incorrectly restored backup. Flashback database logs cannot be backed up.
Action: If you are doing a FLASHBACK DATABASE, then the flashback cannot be performed because of the corrupted log. A restore and an incomplete recovery must be performed instead.
ORA-38743: Time/SCN is in the future of the database.
Cause: The Time/SCN provided in a FLASHBACK DATABASE command was in the future of the database.
Action: Retry the command with a correct Time/SCN or RECOVER the database.
ORA-38744: file string is not the same file seen at start of flashback
Cause: A different copy of the file was accessed the last time FLASHBACK DATABASE looked at the file header. A backup of the file was restored or the meaning of the file name changed during FLASHBACK DATABASE.
Action: Ensure the correct file is available, then retry FLASHBACK DATABASE.
